Well, we both know that I'm still learning, especially in gear, but my equipped squat had gotten wider and slower every time I put my suit on. Meanwhile, my raw squat has remained much more narrow along with that quick drop I mentioned. Maybe later I'll find a happy median that will work best for both, but at this point I really do treat them as different lifts. I'm finding my equipped squat to be very westside-esque at this point. I even hold the bar higher with gear on because my torso stays more upright with the wider stance.
Also, VERY good point on the air. When I get a belly full of air it makes a massive difference at the bottom.
